  • Rod Man with the District of North Vancouver's Survey Department for the past five years, Ryan Matches finds on-the-job inspiration every day for his own photography and art . Whether he's working on the streets, in the woods, or along shorelines, he finds the the visual stimulation to be amazing and manages to snap a few quick pictures on his iPhone for future painting reference, or just for the beautiful photographic content!

  • Public Artists bring unique visions to a city that reflect, engage and challenge the image of its surroundings and its people. The City of North Vancouver's revitalized City Hall includes a number of new public art works each with its own special story.  Pictured above is the artwork entitled 35 Rings by Antonio Millares III and Jeremy Crowle. Flanking the main atrium stairs, the work reflects the history of the City of North Vancouver in a timeline of metaphorical tree rings.
